Just move along. Nothing to see here.

I especially liked page 136, which says

"Goodling’s use of political considerations in connection with these details was particularly damaging to the Department because it resulted in high-quality candidates for important details being rejected in favor of less-qualified candidates. For example, an experienced career terrorism prosecutor was rejected by Goodling for a detail to EOUSA to work on counterterrorism issues because of his wife’s political affiliations. Instead, EOUSA had to select a much more junior attorney who lacked any experience in counterterrorism issues and who EOUSA officials believed was not qualified for the position."

Not exactly light reading, SP. :)

Skip down to Chapter 8- Conclusions for the gist of the affair.

Things like this lead me to believe that anyone who still supports this administration does so purely out of spite.

I'll have to look at it later, like at home where I might have time to read it. ;)





I'm teasing, SP.

Good bedtime reading that :)
If you aren't falling asleep right away from it, you'd want to have a revolver lying next to you in bed :D

Why exactly are you reading all that SP? Job related or for funsies? (Strange funsies imo :D)

Ya, if that doesn't set off warning lights, I don't know what does!

I can't believe I'm taking flak for posting a DOJ report that's maybe 1/10 as long as any book RJ ever wrote and has 2 times the action in that space.

Perhaps if Goodling had tugged her braid while making illegal hirings?Would that make it better?

Grumpy.

I'll probably read at least the summary by the end of the week.

After all, it pays to stay informed.

Are there any bath scenes in it?
Interns running naked around the White House in the middle of the night?

Seriously, though...I read through the conclusions section in just a few minutes. It's not that tough people.

I think it's even double-spaced. ;)

If there aren't pictures and big bold print I'm not interested. I've read enough fine print in the last month to last me a life time.
